DAY 1

Fethiye and the chain of Yassıca Islands

All passengers must report to our offices in front of the marina around 09:30 in the morning. After settling on board we will have a nice breakfast and we will prepare to sail. After completing the port formalities, we will begin our journey towards the Yassıca chain of islands, a navigation that will last between an hour and an hour and a half. After arriving at this magnificent work of nature we will have lunch and a break for the bathroom. We will have dinner and spend the night in a nearby bay called Bedri Rahmi. This Bay owes its name to the artist Bedri Rahmi Eyüpoğlu, who during a blue cruise made drawings of fish on the rocks, still appreciable today. There you can also visit ancient tombs and various archaeological remains. We will have the possibility to drop anchor in small bays around. [/ Tg_program]

DAY 2

Göcek Bay – Cleopatra Bay – Ağa Bay

After a delicious breakfast, we will resume our journey along the coast, arriving just in time for lunch at Cleopatra Bay, named after the legendary pharaoh and queen of Egypt Cleopatra l, came here and made her her Private bathroom for a certain time. In these crystal clear waters if you look carefully at the sea you can see the ruins of a Hamam or Turkish bath. After lunch, we will sail for 45 minutes to the bay of Ağa. There we can go ashore and walk the place, where the ruins of an ancient Roman theater persist. Dinner will be on the boat and we will spend the night anchored in this bay. The routes we offer can be modified, because the sailboats depend on the weather conditions for navigation.

DAY 3

Bays of Göcek- Ekincik and Dalyan

This day is dedicated to navigate once again through the Bays of Göcek, discovering new places, since Göcek has approximately 200 bays and bays. Early in the morning, before waking anyone on board, we will head to Ekincik Bay. After this trip we will have breakfast and then we will head to Dalyan.

Thus, passengers will have free time in Dalyan to visit the ancient city of Kaunos, located between cane fields and generally explore the island.
